Details About William Penn Senior High School Evacuation

Details about response to accident involving district school bus

This morning, a bus transporting students from William Penn Senior High School to the Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy was involved in an accident. Six students were transported to the hospital for assessment of possible injuries. As of 3 p.m., each of the students had been treated and released from the hospital. The driver of the school bus was also transported to the hospital. All other students on the bus were evaluated by school nurses.

The school district contacted parents of the affected students and will report more information to the public when it is available. The safety and well-being of our students is always our top priority. We appreciate the community’s support and patience as we continue to investigate.

School District Of The City Of York

Community Web Portal

A major priority for the School District of the City of York is improved communication, especially with our students’ families. Two years ago, we launched the Community Web Portal to connect parents and guardians directly with their child’s school and teachers. We’ve found great success with this service, but we want more parents and guardians to sign up! Here’s why you should sign up for the Community Web Portal today:

Academics: You don’t need to wait for a report card to know how your child is doing in school! For students in grades 6-12, the Community Web Portal gives you the ability to track your child’s grades on a daily basis. Some teachers are even using the service to help parents track their child’s homework assignments. Parents and guardians of students in all grades have access to traditional report cards – which will continue to be available to you through the Portal after your child is promoted to the next grade.

Attendance: Give yourself the peace of mind of knowing that your child arrived at school by checking the Portal each day. If your child is marked absent, that information will be recorded and available to you through the Portal. You can also keep track of your child’s overall attendance record.

Communication: Sometimes phone numbers and addresses change. Through the Portal, you can immediately alert your child’s school to changes in your family’s contact information.

As our staff and families become more comfortable with the Community Web Portal, we are continuing to add features that enhance communication between our schools and our students’ families. We believe that access to this information empowers families as partners with the school district in the education of children.

Signing up is easy! All you need is an email address. Click here to visit the registration page.

Below are detailed instructions about how to sign up. If you have any questions or need assistance accessing the Portal, contact the main office at your child’s school.
